About the Shirt Davey Wore…

In several photos taken of the Begin Transmission winners’ day recording with AFI, Davey is wearing a shirt given to the band by the winners. The shirt is all handwritten and features a drawing of Smith riding on the hood of Natacia’s car.

I have finally gotten the story behind the shirt. It is from a super secret source whose name I shall not disclose. (Okay, Christy…) Apparently a shirt was sent around the country to each winner. When one received the shirt, they would write a message to the next winner. The last winner, Christy, wrote to the entire Despair Faction.

I’ve been able to read bits and pieces of the shirt, and my transcription (complete with frustratingly long blank spots) can be found here on the DF boards.
